Hi
Welcome to HCM forum
Your condition can be called as Ranula or salivary cyst. The best thing is to consult a ENT surgeon. Take care.

Hi.Does ure swelling hurt. I have a swelling in my mouth (right under my lower lip) since last several months that keeps increasing n decreeasing in size. (even vanishes for weeks). It looks light pink in color. My dentist says its saliva building up in a small pocket n she will have to do a minor procedure to cure it forever, but ive bin putting it off. She asked me not to pinch or prick it ever. If ure pimple is so big that its affecting ure talking/ eating etc n doesnt get smaller soon looks like u'll have to check with ure doctor what to do abt it.

i have a swelling in my neck on both sides. I have had an enlarged submanibular gland removed (left) but the swelling is still there. The surgery was 3 months ago. I am 165cm and 70 kg (female). I have had ultrasounds which have shown nothing but the swelling is so noticeable. Is it possible that my mylohyiod muscle is swollen - its so hard and gets more prominent when I press my tongue to the base of my mouth.
